Exceptions, Institutional Uses and the Construction of Copyright Norms

6.00pm

Seminars

Seminar Series: Intellectual Property

One of the most controversial areas of copyright reform concerns uses of works in institutions such as libraries, museums, archives or schools. Here, interests of authors, institutions, publishers and users collide. Under European copyright law, only few exceptions or limitations may apply. Several cases have highlighted that the central problem may lie in the correct approach to interpreting normative rules as regards both economic rights of reproduction and communication as well as copyright exceptions and limitations. The presentation will in particular look at the issue of “annex” uses - such as permitting library users to store content on USB sticks - as an example of shortcomings in the policy and legal approaches to European copyright law and its reform.

Speaker: Professor Guido Westkamp, Queen Mary University London
